Tofu is a very good source of protein, specifically soy protein. It's also high in iron, while low in calories, sodium and fat.
Chickpeas are a good source of folate and protein and are high in dietary fiber. Chickpeas are low in fat and high in minerals such as phosphorus, calcium, magnesium, iron, and zinc.
